Explain The 10 Virgins Parable
The oil is symbolic of the Holy Spirit. As such all ten virgins at one time had the Holy Spirit.(1) In Biblical times the Groom was betrothed to the Bride, but left to prepare accommodations for the Bride. The Groom in this case is Christ and the Bride is the Church of true born again Christians. He will return again, the Second Coming.(2) As in biblical tradition the accommodation was prepared was attached to the Groom's father's house .(3) The five wise virgins, prepared themselves, by taking extra oil should the Bridegroom be delayed. The foolish virgins took no extra oil, and only noted that their lights were failing after it was announced that the Bridegroom was coming.
